Weekend Reading, 10.14.23

Happy weekend. My plan this weekend is just spending time at home and taking things easy. I had dinner with my family last night and tomorrow I have an event. Otherwise, it’s just reading, working out, getting caught up on work, hopefully watching some TV (I am behind on The Golden Bachelor and am really looking forward to Beckham). Just light stuff… to be honest, I can’t wait! I hope you are having a cozy one and taking care of yourself. xoxo

    Tom robbins is my favorite author, ever.
    Jitterbug perfume was, is my top choice.
    The only film that was adapted from any of his books was, even cowgirls get the blues, starring a young uma Thurman.
    Be prepared to have your dictionary handy, there are a lot of unusual descriptive words & phrases.

    Hi Grace, I vote for a happy medium! Why do we have to be soft girl or girl boss? Why can’t we have a healthy balance? I completely understand why some women at rejecting the girl boss culture. I’ve always been a hard worker from a young age, but also rejected the toxic, patriarchal corporate culture which is quite literally killing people. I once worked at a job that paid you vacation as well as 8 sick days. At the end of the year if you used those days you were paid a full days wage ( seems obvious what the right choice should be)if you did not take those days off you were paid only half. Do you know how many people prided themselves on never taking a sick day? Worse than that, the company wins. That’s our crazy American work culture at its best. We could learn a lot from other countries. At least ( smart girl that you are!) when you work for yourself , you get to make those choices. P.S. Lessons in Chemistry is now on Apple tv!
